Four wrestlers had perfect days to lead the Little Falls wrestling team to second place at the Fergus Falls Isaiah Anderson Memorial Duals, Saturday.

Seniors Dillon Kifer and Frank Wilczek and juniors Connor Scherping and Conor Swanson guided the Flyers to wins over Moorhead (53-21) and Thief River Falls-Good-ridge (41-34) to reach the finals.

In the championship dual, Class A’s second-ranked Kimball Area emerged on top by a score of 50-25.

Wilczek earned two falls in a combined 47 seconds and received a forfeit, Kifer recorded three falls and Scherping and Swanson each tallied three bonus-point victories.

Little Falls jumped out to a 32-5 lead against Moorhead before consecutive falls by sophomore Trysten Ross, junior David Copa and Swanson sealed the win.

The Flyers’ lightweights once again set the tone against Thief River Falls, winning six of the first seven bouts to build a 35-6 advantage.

The Prowlers responded by winning six matches in a row to pull within 35-34 heading into the final bout, but Swanson kept the Flyers on top with a fall in 2:17.

Little Falls hosts Class AA’s third-ranked Foley tonight.
